Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation to add 1,300 hectares of land
The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) will get all the land that was leased, encroached upon, and kept for public purposes after the merger of Pimpri Chinchwad New Township Authority (PCNTDA) with the Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) and PCMC.
A resolution was issued on June 7 by the state government.
Chief executive officer of PCNTDA, Bansi Gawli, told the media that as per a tentative estimation of the 1,800 hectares under the PCNTDA the PCMC will get a major share of around 1,300 hectares, and PMRDA will get around 350 hectares. More than six months will be needed for its distribution.
The PCMC has already developed the area under its authority but with the merger, it will get hold of undeveloped areas as well. Gawli further added that the PMRDA will get the fixed deposits and other investments, liabilities, and PCNTDA’s office.
Almost 50 permanent staff of the PCNTDA will be transferred to PMRDA.
The PCMC will remain the special planning authority of all PCNTDA areas, which effectively means the building construction permissions and powers for approving the transfer of development rights and floor space index will be with the PCMC.
